Dr. Cherie Netzloff is the director of the skilled nursing facility/sub-acute rehabilitation program through the PM&R department at the University of Michigan. She is a board certified PM&R physician who completed her PM&R residency training at the University of Michigan. After residency Dr. Netzloff spent a year on the medical staff for Mary Free Bed Rehabilitation Hospital in Grand Rapids. During her time there Dr. Netzloff provided services to patients at five different hospitals on the west side of the state in addition to the main Mary Free Bed hospital. She also participated in a virtual visit service where she connected via iPads to patients across the Midwest who required rehabilitation services. This experience helped build her interest in following patients who require multiple levels of care to complete their recovery trajectory. Her current position at UofM allows her to provide PM&R services to patients in the UMHS system who are receiving care at the local skilled nursing and sub-acute facilities.
In addition, Dr. Netzloff has an interest in complementary alternative medicine (CAM). She is a certified reflexologist through the Branch Reflexology training program. When Dr. Netzloff is not performing her UofM duties she sees clients for reflexology sessions. Her long term goal is to research multiple CAM methods and offer those that are safe and effective to her patients alongside traditional medical treatments.
